Selling or Buying a Home? Mr. Handyman Can Help!

Spring is a time when many choose to buy a new home and sell their existing homes, so this seemed a seasonally appropriate topic to cover as the days get longer and we settle into a Spring mindset.

As your one call solution for most home improvement, repair and maintenance needs, Mr. Handyman is the perfect solution for both buyers and sellers. Early in the selling process owners and their agents inventory work to be done before the home is shown. This might include general maintenance or specific repairs.

The home may benefit from fresh caulk in bathrooms and the kitchen, or exterior caulking around doors and windows. Bi-fold doors need to be returned to working order, dings and dents in the drywall need repair and broken floor tiles need replacement. The goal is to reduce the appearance of ‘wear and tear’ throughout the home.

Once an offer has been accepted the Inspectors enter the picture. The buyers mortgage provider will require a WDO inspection – Wood Destroying Organisms. Often a more general home inspection will also be requested; to have a trained eye give the home a once over. We can handle most items identified during these inspections and have trusted referral partners for services we don’t perform.

Finally, new owners moving into a house want to make it their home. This may include installing curtain rods, mini-blinds and shelving. We hang pictures and mirrors, install medicine cabinets, paint walls and assemble things. For those with bigger plans we can replace interior and exterior doors, refurbish the deck, install a back splash and do many other home improvement projects.

Most people only buy and sell a few homes in their life, and don’t always know who to call for something like clearing a WDO report. Realtors, who do this frequently, recommend Mr. Handyman because we show up on time, do quality work and stand behind our work with a guarantee. We just make the process easy. There’s enough stress in the housing market today without worrying about your contractor showing up and doing the work properly.
